January 2022 Business Meeting Minutes

Posted on January 12, 2022 By

Coronet’s Report – Baron Muin maqq Minain

Baron – People are worn out, burned out, spread thin. Please be respectful of the entire situation. Lots of people are struggling right now.  

Hello, Bhakail!

As Pliny the Elder was often known to say:

Nos auferet loquentes
Nescio quid dicam
Dicam usquam
Hodie alius dies ad inveniendum te
Veniam ad tuum amorem, bene?

Wise words indeed. We should all, in these trying times, pay heed. 

Be well. 

  – Muin,
Baron of Bhakail

Seneschal’s Report – Honorable Lady Alesia de Maris of Ravenstar


Due to a new rise in Covid, the Kingdom has put all in person events, workshops and practices on hold until January 17th. As soon as more information becomes available it will be put on the Bhakail list and put on the Facebook page.

Tavern is still on for January 29th but the date may be moved back to March. (Please see the Tavern report above.)
